Spoiler
When Ryan Reynolds locked himself in the hospital room and then unplugged the boss' life support totally made up for any shortcomings the movie may have had.
While I liked the ending on it's own, it felt so wierd compared to the rest of the film. Up until the end it had almost a Crank vibe going with how ridiculous and over the top everything was, then all of a sudden it shifted gears and tried to be a serious dramatic film, and I just couldn't make the transition.

The 1st one is definitely coming out day and date same as the "sequel". And because it's a Universal release, it'll be DTS HD-MA. I'm lookin' forward to replacing my HD DVD with this.

I can't say the same...I sold this one off. Apart from some actually funny moments (the disturbed kid), the film is too trashy and preposterous as a whole.
